I Think of You - Ocean Themed Card - Video

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with an ocean-themed card featuring brand new dies from the 2021 Under the Sea release.  This release is full of amazing new ocean themed dies, shape dies, new 3D embossing folders, woodgrain paper, and a new line of self-adhesive gems/droplets.  For my card I used several of the ocean themed dies along with self-adhesive clear droplets - which come in a handy 3 size pack!

Here's a quick video showing how I made my card:

Here's a close up view:

I used a lot of ink blending and smooshing to make this card and I love how the clear droplets take on the color under them, so they will match any project you use them on!
The sentiment is from the Birch Press Designs set "Crystal Lingo," heat embossed on black card stock.

Glitter Easter Egg Card with Video
by Sara Cook

I have an easy Easter card that has layers for a stunning effect.  Check out the video tutorial, link below.


I used the Rustic Tree and Bramble Collage dies and cut out a medium and light green paper from the Lush Green paper pack.  Die cut the Rustic Tree Collage die out of the darker of the green paper and the Bramble Collage die from the lighter green.  Trim the papers to 4 1/4"x5 1/2".

For the background I ink blended  Squeezed Lemon Aid, Spun Sugar, and Tumbled Glass Distresss Oxide Iinks in a rainbow effect.

Add double sided adhesive foam tape to the back of the darker green paper and adhere to the lighter green paper.  Adhere the 2 stacked papers over the ink blended background and then adhere to a A2 size card.


I die cut eggs using Half Dozen Eggs die set and Delicate Pastel Glitter pack.  I glued the egg die cuts on the front of the card.


I used the Happy Easter Posh Scrip die and ut it out of pink Delicate Pastel Glitter paper an adhere to the top center of the card.

Handmade Easter Baskets with Video
by Sara Cook

Hello everyone. I have an Easter basket project today using the Spring Plaid Slim line paper pack.  This is an easy and fun project you can your kids can do together.  Check out the YouTube tutorial, link below.



Cut 2 pieces of matching slim line papers to 8 1/4" in length, removing the hole. Choose what side is inside of the basket and what is the outside.  Score 1/4" along the top of the inside of the paper and score at 4 1/4".  Turn paper and score 1/4" from edge of paper down the longest side at 3 1/4"..  Score the 2nd paper the same way. Fold along the score lines.  This will create 1/4" flaps along top and along 1 side of the paper.  Cut the corners of the each flap.  Then cut the long flap at the 4 1/4" score only up to the flap.  Cut the corners on each flap.  Glue the short flaps and adhere to the other side of the  paper to form a box.  Cut a base out of matching paper to 4"x4".  Add glue to the flaps from inside of the box and put the 4"x4" paper over the glued flaps.  To make the handle cut a strip of paper 11"x1".  Shape to form a curve.  Add glue to bottom 1/2" end of the strip and adhere to inside of the box.  Add glue to the other end and adhere to the other side of the box.

Now for the fun part, decorating!  This is where you use your creativity to embellish the basket how you want. Below are some ideas to get you started.

I used Wild Glass Boarder die to make a a grassy board around a basket.  Added eggs die cute out of Delicate Pastel Glitter paper using the Half Dozen Eggs die and and bunny die cut out of white paper using the Gentle Bunny Die.  


I die cut the smaller flower of the Layered Cosmos craft die out of white paper and colored it with Pan Pastels.  Each flower used 3 layers of flowers.  Added a matching butterfly using the Glade Butterfly die.  Colored the base using Copic markers.  Cut out the top layer out of gold paper from the Polished Foil pad and glued it on top.   Arrange the elements on the basket.


Now fill with your favorite Easter candy.  My basket will be filled with chocolate.

Look for Rainbows Slimline Card
by Angie Cimbalo

7 best one

Hello, it's Angie here today with some of the new 2021 Spring dies, stamps and papers from Memory Box!  This latest release not only has some amazing new large stamp sets and beautiful dies, it also has the newest product - 6" X 6" card stock pads in the most amazing solid coordinating colors!  My card showcases several of the gorgeous colors available in these new pads of card st0ck.

I used several new dies, new paper and a new stamp set, along with a few previously released dies too. 

 Here's a video showing how I made this card:

1)  The rainbows were made with the new "Arch Collage" die and five of the new 6" x 6" solid color paper pads.  I first used the arch die on seven colors of card stock.  Next I cut the arches from a slimline white panel, adding a white backing panel to it, so I could paper pieced the strips into the negative space on both rainbows.

I also used several of the newly released slimline dies.  I love to make slimline cards and these dies make it so easy to do.

2)  The white panels were cut with the new "Wrapped Slim Stitched" rectangle dies and the black panel was cut with one of the new "Slim Basic Rectangle Layers" die.  This die set has so many sizes to create layers of any size on your slimline creations.

3)  The sentiment is heat embossed in white on black card stock and it is from the "Joyful Moments" clear stamp set.  I die cut it with the smallest die in the "Wrapped Stitched Rectangle" die set.

4)  The hearts were cut from the same pink paper with the "Sprinkle Heart Collage" die and placed on the card front.

5)  Lastly I added the card to the card base (which was 3.5" x 8.5") and added lots of shimmer pen to all the hearts and all the arched colored pieces.  It's hard to see the shine but in person, it just glistens!

Here's one more look:


I hope you have a chance to stop by the Memory Box website to see all the wonderful new products.  This release is one of my favorites ever!  

The video above of the making of this card is also on my YouTube channel if you would like to see it, click HERE.

3D Embossing Folder Video
by Sara Cook

Hello everyone. Hope everyone is doing good this week.  I'm so excited about the new spring release.  So many must have items.  One of them is the 3D embossing folder.  You can quickly and easily make beautiful cards for any occasion.  Check out the how to video linked below.


Front panel:

Take the darkest purple color from the Ocean Blue paper pack, lightly spray with water, and emboss with the 3D embossing folder. Trim down the panel to 4"x51/2". Lightly swipe Picket Fence Distress ink across the top of the flowers.  Use your finger or blending tool to blend in the ink into the flowers and leafs.  Lightly swipe Picket Fence Distress ink across the top of the flowers again.  Side a side to dry.


Die cut the base butterfly from the Glade Butterfly from the same dark purple card stock.  Die cut the top of the Glade Butterfly from the light purple card stock from the Ocean Blue paper pack.  Add Fairy Sugar Berry Mist glitter glue to the base of the butterfly.  Let dry.  Fold the wings of the top die due and then glue just the center to the base butterfly die cut.



Stamp the sentiment on white 110lb card stock using "Missing your Smile" sentiment from Joyful Moments and Monarch VersafineClare's ink.  Fussy cut out the sentiment.


Glue the front embossed panel to a white A2 card.  Glue the butterfly and sentiment on the panel.
